Winfrey’s new stake in Discovery, through her company Harpo Inc. , totals close to 1.34 million shares, or less than 1 percent of Discovery’s outstanding Class A stock. Harpo maintains control of 5 percent of OWN.

Disney+ and sister platform Hulu top the list of streamers in total TV advertising impressions in 2020, followed by Amazon Prime Video, Peacock and Apple TV+. This according to ad tracking company iSpot, which tracked impressions as verified playing of ads on a TV screen for at least three seconds. Disney+ racked up 18.3 billion impressions through December 20, a 425 percent increase over 2019, while Hulu, which came fully under the Disney fold last year, racked up just under 15 billion impressions, up 144 percent year over year.

Vimeo, the video subsidiary of Interactive Corp., will be spun off into its own company next year. The spinoff is expected to take effect in Q2 2021 for Vimeo, which reported 1.46 million subscribers in the quarter ended in September, a 21 percent gain from the same period a year ago, with revenue of $75.1 million.
